The effort will help the seed and chemical giant diversify its revenue stream, capitalizing on a decade-long farm data collection effort. Environmental outcomes would then be certified by a third-party verifier so that farmers can potentially sell their grain for a premium, Bayer said. Bayer will charge companies a flat or per-acre fee for the services, and make money from farmers through seed and chemical sales and data-platform subscriptions. The launch initially targets U.S. agriculture but the company envisions broadening it to other countries, though no timetable is set yet, Bayer said. ForGround requires that farmers enroll in Bayer's Climate FieldView platform, where growers log data about agricultural practices such as no-till farming or planting cover crops.

The United Nations' worst-case scenario calculation is that global food prices will rise by an additional 8.5% by 2027. Spikes in fertilizer prices started when Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022. The region is responsible for at least 28% of the world's fertilizer exports, including nitrogen-, potassium- and phosphorus-based fertilizers, according to Morgan Stanley. "There's a direct relationship with what we're seeing in fuel prices and fertilizer prices," Jo Handelsman, director of the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, told CNBC. Watch the video above to learn more about the world fertilizer crisis amid supply chain woes and its climate change impact, while exploring potential solutions on the horizon.

Young people have to "play the long game" if they want to achieve it, according to one successful CEO. Matt Weiss, who leads the upcycled dried snacks company RIND, says young people often feel a tremendous amount of pressure to achieve success early in their careers. But Weiss says that's the wrong way to go about it: Instead of trying to emulate those quick and flashy success stories, young people should work towards longer-term career goals. That's the best way to set yourself up for lasting success, according to Weiss. "It takes time and requires young people to think more long term if they want to reach that kind of success."

The United Nations' worst-case scenario calculation is that global food prices will rise by an additional 8.5% by 2027. It turns my stomach a little bit to think about the amount of risk that our family farm is taking right now." Without fertilizer, plants may not get the nourishment they need to result in the yields necessary to meet global demand. According to the International Fertilizer Association, we would only be able to feed about half of the global population without fertilizer.

ISTANBUL—An international agreement to restore Ukraine’s Black Sea grain exports is showing early progress, with 18 ships moving to and from ports in Odessa nearly six months after Russia’s invasion bottled up a chunk of the world’s agricultural products. On Saturday, the grain initiative passed a key milestone when the first inbound ship to arrive in Ukraine under the agreement safely departed Odessa after loading 12,000 tons of corn bound for Turkey. Before the ship’s departure, all of the other outbound ships leaving Odessa had been vessels that were stranded in Ukraine when Russia attacked in February.

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey recently said younger people "don't seem like they want to work" partly because they want meaningful jobs. "Younger people aren't quick to work because they want meaningful work," Mackey told Reason.

Disillusioned, younger workers are fighting for moreBut younger workers aren't just being more selective with their jobs because they want their work to have an impact.

In the U.K., several supermarket companies this year abandoned various date labels on certain foods. Packaged produce sold without date labels will instead feature a code that store workers will use to assess when to take products off the shelf, the company said. The U.S., however, has no federal law on date labels for food other than baby formula, making for a hodgepodge of state laws and guidance. Photo: Alisha Jucevic for The Wall Street JournalSome analysts said getting rid of date labels could backfire. U.S. lawmakers have long sought to pass legislation to simplify and standardize date labeling.

The U.N. brokered a deal last month between Ukraine and Russia allowing grain shipments to break through a monthslong Russian blockade. The U.N. secretary general, António Guterres, said the pact would ease global food shortages, calling it “a beacon of relief.”So far none of the 14 grain-laden vessels that have departed Ukraine are heading to countries facing food shortages. An additional 7,000 metric tons is slated be shipped on another vessel soon, according to the World Food Program. U.N. officials have said that commercial trade plays a role in stabilizing the market, even if it does not go directly to nations facing food shortages. Stéphane Dujarric, a spokesman for the U.N. secretary general’s office, said that unblocking Ukrainian ports had already driven global food prices down, which would eventually help countries facing food insecurity.

Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.com RegisterIts enactment would represent a rare legislative defeat for the pharmaceutical industry and set a new precedent for curbing drug prices in the world's most lucrative market for medicines, according to congressional and industry officials. The pharma campaign argued that prescription drugs do not contribute to inflation, citing an average 2.5% rise in drug prices in the past year compared to a 17% rise in health insurance prices. A KFF study estimated that prices increased faster than inflation for half of all drugs covered by Medicare in 2020. "With this vote I would imagine Pharma realizes they do not have a lot of friends left among Democrats," said Larry Levitt, vice president for health policy at KFF. And they will, I suspect, try and alter the legislation," said Mark Miller, a former government health policy official who is now executive vice president of healthcare at Arnold Ventures.

If you use an at-home antigen test, you may need to test yourself repeatedly. People who do have Covid-19 symptoms should take at least two tests 48 hours apart. “Your viral load grows after you get infected,” said Dr. Michael Mina, a former Harvard epidemiologist who is now the chief science officer for eMed, which sells at-home tests. “It goes up, and that takes time.”What should I do if I test positive for the virus? Isolate at home for at least five days, and keep your distance from others in your household.

Coca-Cola is concluding a yearlong effort to flavor the abstract with a new soda the company says tastes like dreams. Since Dreamworld’s flavor is based on a concept as opposed to a food, it is unclear from the labeling what the soda actually tastes like. “Like the Coca-Cola Creations that came before it, Dreamworld plays with the unexpected and will no doubt provoke discovery and debate among consumers … which we welcome,” Cascino continued. I immediately got a citrus flavor from this soda, but I thought the overall flavor was similar to Marshmello’s limited-edition Coke." Coca-Cola's "Dreamworld" flavor will be available in stores on Aug. 15.
